The line on Temple vs. Penn State may be an outrageous -28 ½ in favor of the road team - Temple - but the betting public is all over Penn State here as the huge home underdog. betED.com we should point out had this one at Penn State +29.

Gambling911.com won't even try to set odds on such a lopsided matchup but we can say that overwhelmingly 95 percent of the action is going Penn State's way. The line opened at Temple -30 so the trend is for the odds to keep moving downward in an effort to get more wagers on the favorites here.

We do not see the odds makers going below -26 ½ here as it seems the line is shaded above -25. But once again, these mismatches in College Football present some difficulties in determining a "true" line.

Temple has lost two close one's so far and has one win under its belt heading into Week 4 of College Football play.

Penn State has won 8 of their last 10, most by quite a few points.

The Nittany Lions have also blown Temple away their last two meetings by scores of 31-0 and 47-0, respectively.

Number 16 ranked Penn State had two of its football players charged with one count each of possession of a small amount of marijuana this week. Maurice Evans and Abe Koroma have both been suspended this weekend.

As odd as it may sound, the 1-2 Owls - who will travel to State College for a noon kickoff Saturday - likely will present Penn State with its stiffest nonconference test of the season, writes Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

"This will be the best team we've played so far this year," Penn State Coach Joe Paterno said yesterday during his weekly teleconference. "They're experienced. They're extremely well-coached."
